Driver leads police on chase in stolen car

 A Davenport man led Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies in a chase in a stolen car early Sunday.

Deputies spotted a vehicle with expired license plates around 12:09 a.m., according to a criminal complaint.

When they attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver — Bryan L. Hall, 36 — drove away. During the pursuit, the complaint said, Hall drove in the wrong lane, ignored traffic signals and stop signs and went the wrong way on a one-way street.

When he was stopped, Hall told deputies he didn’t stop because he knew he had warrants for his arrest.

Authorities said Hall admitted to using drugs before driving.

Deputies also determined the vehicle was stolen, and Hall admitted to finding the vehicle with keys in it and taking it.

Also found in the vehicle were knives with blades of 5 inches and 8 inches.

Hall faces charges of second-degree theft, eluding, operating under the influence and two counts of carrying weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia.

His bail has been set at $15,000 cash or surety, and Scott County has placed a detainer on him, according to jail records.
